Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho told Antonio Conte that his wild celebrations after Chelsea’s fourth goal yesterday were humiliating for him and his team.
The Portuguese coach took his Red Devils side to Stamford Bridge in his first return to West London since being dismissed by Roman Abramovich last season.

However, the reunion did not go quite as planned for Mourinho, with his team losing 4-0 to a rampant host.
After N’Golo Kante netted the Chelsea fourth, Conte celebrated wildly and urged the home crowd to do likewise.
This prompted Mourinho to have a quiet word in the Italian’s ear at the end of the game, with the conversation now revealed.
“It’s my opinion, but you do it at 1-0 — not at 4-0,” the Portuguese said to Conte in Italian, according to The Sun.
“That’s humiliation for us.”
Mourinho has work to do to get his United side back on track, with the Old Trafford outfit conceding ground on the Premier League’s frontrunners after the defeat.
Chelsea meanwhile look like a transformed side after Conte’s decision to switch to a 3-4-3 formation and are on a run of three consecutive Premier League wins.
